The title of your entry caused me to think: "And which saints exactly should one invoke in questions regarding bunnies?"

(A weighty question, yes, but someone has to handle such, and it might as well be me.)

I have discovered at least two saints that historically have been associated with bunnies: St Melangell (d. 570 AD) a Celt from North Wales, and St Fevronia (ca. XII cent.) of Murom, in Russia.

Both women had pet hares, and are depicted with them in traditional iconography. St Melangell is venerated in both the East and West, while St Fevronia is remembered solely in the Orthodox East.

Unfortunately, no-where in my readings of the Vitæ and Συναξάριον could I uncover any appropriate references to gun bunnies, or armed hares of any sort.

I think the honorable Miss Nicholas is splitting hares over a finer point of theology here.

Thank you Lady Kate.
Now I think I shall need and icon of St Melangell for the Guvnah and for myself.

The search continues for armed rodents - particularly hares.

Nice play on words, Mr O'Toole.

But do remember that it is the professional drive of every scientist to split hares over every point - often times even after something is generally accepted as fact.
